Pages 12287-12288. Congressman Lipscomb, (R) California, 
spoke concerning the request made by the United States Information Agency (XJSIA) 
for funds to supply American books and publications to foreign countries. j 

Mr* Lipscomb stated "On scrutinizing the list which was submitted to the committee 
one runs across a number of amazing items— including a so-called New Frontier 
bookshelf. ' ThJS'bookshelf* consists, of eight volumes. " He lists the names and 
authors of the books. Mr. Lipscomb goes on to state "The thousands of volumes 
being sent overseas include more than just the New Frontier Bookshelf. Included 
in the assortment of publications are some which are highly commendable, but 
unfortunately these comprise a very small minority.*- - - Again in Indonesia, we 
sent five copies of a book , Master ^Iof.,P eceit; written by a man the USIA lists as 
John E. Hoover. To us here in America'.he- is better known as J. Edgar Hoover, ,

July 24, 1962 

Mr. J. Edgar Hoover 

Federal Bureau of Investigation 

Washington, D. C. 

Dear Mr. Hoover: 

Thank you for your cordial letter and the enclosures: 
"Let f s Fight Communism Sanely, Internal Security, Bulletin 
to All Law Enforcement Officials, and shall it be Law or 
Tyranny." I have carefully read the contents, and I 
heartilly agree with the contents, and .1 believe and agree 
with every sentence. 

I belong to no organizations whatsoever, but I believe 
everyone should read "Master's of Deceit, and The F. B. I. 
Story." I was so stirred by them that I gave my copies to 
others to read. This is what I meant by the paragraph enclosed 
in red in my original letter, & copy of which: is enclosed. 

I did not want to leave the impression I advocated that 
anyone take the law in their own hands. 

I am sure the church is the answer to all problems. 
Presently I attend the Salvation Army, because it is close 
by. I can find, an answer to every problem in the. Bible 
which I have read throught 26 times ( an am finishing it 
the 27th time now) since 1954. 

Fallowing your career since- you v/ere appointed director, 
I have' made it a point to read everything in the papers about 
you and by you, together with books. I was well acquainted 
with "This Is Your F. B. I." radio series when I worked in 
an ABC radio affiliate. 

* After much forethought, -I have concluded that no man in 
all history in governmental work has surpassed your distinguished 
record, integrity, fairness, ability and the high ethicalj 
standards you have established and enforced.

A PRAYER 

; Slow me down, Lord! 

Ease the pounding of my heart by the quieting of my mind. 
Steady my hurried pace with a vision of the eternal reach of time. 
Give me, amid the confusion of the day, the calmness* of the ever- 
lasting hills. 

Break the tensions of my nerves and muscles with the soothing music 
of the singing streams that live Jh myc memory. Help me, to know 
the magical, restoring power of sleep. * ' 

Teach me the "art of taking minute vacations — of slowing down to 
look at a flower, to chat with a friend, to pat a dog, to read a few 
lines from a good bood. 

Remind me each day of the fable of the hare and tortoise, that I may 
know that the race is not always to the swift — that there is more 
to life than increasing its speed. Let me look upward into the branch- 
es of the towering oak and know that jit grew great and strong be- 
cause it grew slowly and well. 

Slow me down, Lord, and inspire I me to send my roots deep into the 
soil of life's enduring values that I may grow toward the stars of 
my greater destiny. 

In Jesus 1 Name, Amen

BEST WISHES! ! 
Miss Olivia Burrell and Mr, Rob- 
ert A. Williams, Jr. were united in 
marriage on July 23 at the Rose 
Hill Baptist Church, Columbus, with 
her father, Dr. A. Judson Burrell, 
and our pastor officiating. We ex- 
tend to them our heartiest good 
wishes and pledge them our prayers 
as they continue as, "A TEAM" on 
our Church Staff! 

IT ISN'T THE CHURCH - 
IPS YOUt 

If you want to have the kind of 

a church 
Like the kind of a church you like, 
You needn't slip your clothes in a 

grip 
And start on a long, long hike. 
You'll only find what you left 

behind, 
For there's nothing really new. 
Irs a knock at yourself when you 

knockyour church; 
It isn't the church — it's you. 
It's really strange sometimes, don't 

you know, 
That things go as well as they do, 
When we think of the little — the 

very small mite — 
We add to the work of the few. 
We sit, and stand around, and 

' complain* of what's done, 
And do very little but fuss. 
-Are-we*bearing^r^hare*bf-the 

burdens to bear? 
It isn't the church — it's us. 
So, if you want' to have the kind of 

a church 
Like the kind of a church you like, 
Put off your guile, and put on your 

best smile, 
And hike, my brother, just hike, 
To the work in hand that has to be 

done f --' 
The work of saving a few. 
It isn't the church that is wrong, 

my friend: 
It isn't the church — it's you.

shin.e alii through your journalistic effort to inform the American 
people* Speaking as just one young American, during a time when, 
faithlessness, weak faith, and even betrayal , seem to be carrying 
I the day, it is an inspiration, to know there are Americans who:- 
I will never sell-out. I believe that this complete integrity that 
no-evil can ever besmirch, is what will^save our Nation, and our to 
Nafcibirwillo.be saved* _ 

I was particulaS.lv intrigued by your suggestion on page 
311: "Suppose every American spent a little time eacji day, les 
than the time demanded by the communi&fes, in studying the Bible 
and the basic documents of American history, government/, and 
culture? The result would be a new America, vigilant, /strong 
but ever humble in the service of God." 

I believe this is one of the most positive and Constructive 
suggestions I have seen in a long time, pointing the way; that our 
Nationr can recapture the spirituals strength that comesp'froifi doing 
right* Can you; expand on this suggestion? 1 What kindPof courses 
would you recommend for citizens in Bible study, and what^kind of 
personal study for the servants x>f the people engaged in govern- 
ment service? I should think that all^American public officials, 
whose purpose in office is to preserve the blessings 6f liberty,

American -'Cultural Education 
For Thinking Adults 



'HB&H WOT? ■ *. 



Following Pearl Harbor. December 7, 19Ul, there x*as no question -that American 
youth would make personal sacrifices in defense of America. And the endless rows 
of crosses, scattered across the fields and beaches of Europe. Africa, Asia, and 
the Pacific still give silent witness to those young Americans who loved Country 
more than life. But today , twenty years later, various developments indicate that 
the American people can no'longer assume the loyalty of our youth in the defense 
of our Natioh. Certain evidence reveals that our youth fcavo become confused in 
loyalty , that events are being shaped to actually turn our young people against 
Ahe^sp^ is based. 






I. 

The Ideological Challenge 

1) During the Korean War, in which about 7,000 Americans were captured and 
put into Chinese prisoner-of-war camps, 30% of these young Americans, more than 
one out of every three, gave information to the enemy detrimental to American mil- 
itary security. Major William E. Mayer, ah Army psychiatrist and authprity on 
Communist "brainwashing," attributes * this remarkable behavior of young Americans 
in captivity to /their weak 'loyal ties, to their love of physical comfort, to their 
confusion about the purpose for American sacrifice in Korea. ( <H ^ 

2) "Operation Abolition," a fill* put out in connection' with ; the House Com- 
mittee on Un-American Activities investigations in California, relates 'the mob 




of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and San Frahcis"co puouc oxlicials, "attest 
to the accuracy of this filii, that the idealism of American college students was 
in fact, misdirected against bur own form of Constitutional government. 

3) Former Harvard President James Bryant Conant indicated recently in his 
book*"Slums and Suburbs ""the general prdbleriHSf -Northern* cities? ^Iri one city, with 
a slum area of over 12f>,000 - predominately negro - 70% of the boys and girls be- 
tween the ages of 16-21 are either unemployed* or out of school. This situation ■ 
of discontented negro youth in Northern slums, Dr.^ Conant calls "social (dynamite," 
requiring immediate national attention, _ The militant discontent of negro youth 
has* already been 
land, and by the 
where negroes fom 5\$ oJT the population. 

Cultural Loyally 

These -cultural developments} in marked^ contrast to tlie traditional loyalty 
of American youth to our cultural Ideals, raise the serious question of how much 
America really' means to youths who will give security information to the enemy in 
time of wary who participate In mob riots against -American Constitutional authori- 
ty, whose life in' urban slums leads towards crimes of violence and demonstrations 



well demonstrated by "Freedom Rides" into Mississippi and llary- 
record crime wave in :6iir National Capital, Wash'ingtbh, D.C*,

against society and the state v The traditional* .loyalty of our youth to American 
culture does not have to be systematically -destroyed, however. Cultural loyally 
can be v created and inspired*^ a serious national stu<&" program directed to the 
question,. I'What Does America Mean to Y u ? " Selected youths of integrity and' basic 

about their 



gap be- 
tween personal and cultural ideals, between profess ion and practice, resulting in 
conduct loyal to American ideals* This program could raise questions such as the 
following:- \ - , .- .- <' , : \ j, , »

I'Jhy? Do you look* at yourself realistically, cultj^^ 
ing : in productive ^ -well-baianced maturity? Do you uphqldJunerican ideals*? 

The place of religion in personal *character/development^could^be^cultiTOted 
through a competent and concise Bible study guide such" as Halley's Bible Handbook 
(which meets the evolutionary challenge to fundamental faith in the Bible as the 
Ubrd of God). Student's could be challenged to develop their own approach towards 
cultivating an appreciation qf flo3y Scripture^ <Gqd*s plan for Peace and the Sal- 
vation of the human race*

III. 
The Challenge to American Ifreedom 

The basic challenge to American freedom in I96I lies in the simple fact that 
faith in j and allegiance to American cultural ideals has been undermined at home, 
while abroad the power of atheistic materialism has inspired the hearts, minds, 
and souls of men* The ignorance of the American people of their own idealistic 
.foundations, of the laws of nature and nature's God," has been matched jby their 
ignorance of the pseudo-scientific ideals of America's sworn enemies* 

'Dr. Fred Schwarz, in "You Can Trust the Communists (to do exactly as they 
say)" gives a dispassionate and objective analysis of what makes Communism tick. 
Life magazine, .in addition, has recently run an excellent series on the develop- 
ment of world Communism* Both of these- endeavors ase examples of the type of pat- 
eriaL needed to construct an accurate cultural comparison of American and Communist 
ideals, the type of -stuGty that should be the backbone/ of any serious program to 
give &aerican _ youth the truth about the challenge .Communist ideology now presents 
uonstTtutiohal freedom. 

Communist Agrarian Reform 

Up to now,, Communism has, successfully sold itself to intellectuals^ youths, 
and peasants through such emotional appeals as "Peace, bread, and land." With 
this .slogan Nikolai, Lenin captured the -loyally of Russian peasants* who had torn 
down Czarism, and replaced it with Communism* In more recent times ,% Mao Tse-tung 
took China and Fidel Castro conquered Cuba with 'the battle-cry of "agrarian re- 
form,," Unfortunately for the landless peasants, neither Kao and Castro, nor Lenin 
for that matter, intended to fulfill promises, of agrarian reform. This is because 
land, the means of production, according to strict socialist, theory, belongs- in' 
the hands of the state, not in the hands of homesteading farmers** The. Russians, 
under Joseph Stalin, followed strict socialist theoxy-, and created' the collective 
faim , based on state ownership of the land* Peasants were allowed, however, to 
.own small plots of land* But. the real price paid for aligning Russian agriculture 
:with socialist theory was the liquidation of h million Iculaks, the small* fanners 
who stood in the way of the collectives* The Chinese, on the other .hand, took the 
full plunge into Communism* They abolished all f orms of private property on the 
communal fairos* peasants- lost all rights to land, -property, and even rights 40^ 
own children.. It is riot known how many peasants lost the right to their own lives 
in the liquidation process to achieve theoretically pure Communism*, 

„ But the results of these two theoretical: approaches towards agriculture, the 
socialist . and the communist, are known. In "Russia* food production continually 
falls short of goals set by "Communist Party planners, in Moscow^ while in China the 
commune, has failed to keep food, supplies abreast of the expanding Chinese* popular 
tioh, now; 'in. the vicinity of 600 million souls. 

National Survival and Scientific Agriculture 

The collapse of the Chinese commune has raised serious implications for the 
future of world Communism. For .if theoretically correct- Communist agriculture can 
not produce the goods, producing famines instead- of fooct,*what happens if Commu- 
nism wins the world in twenty years and destroys American family faming? -Who * 
then will feed the world? Do the goverments and peoples of South Aire rica, Asia, 
and Africa, who believe Communism is the wave of the future, seriously expect to 
be fed by the Russian .and Chinese people who can't eyen feed themselves? 



National survival requires competent systems of agriculture to feed expand- 
ing populations, scientific faming based upon common sense and an objective 
approach towards, facts and theory* Those nations and cultures, faced with, papula- 
tion 'increases threatening towipe out all the :hard won- gains attained by urban 
planners^ heed, to discbverlpractlcal^ri^^ 



tional survival, 

What^sys^em of agriculture actually produces results , tee Russian collective, 
the Chinese, commune, or the American family farm? While reliable figures oh 
Chinese food production are' non-existent, enough comparative statistics are avail- 
able" on Russian' agriculture, ihdi"cating : %hat one f arm worker produces enough food 
to feed $ other people. In America, on the other hand, in i860, one farm worker 
fed l»,5 other people. He fed" $ in 1870, 7 in 19G0, 11 in 19k0, arid in i960 he fed 
23>, The Russian fanti worker, by this comparison, feeds the same number of .people 
the American farm worker fed in 1870,, 5* other people,, "But in i960 the - Abb rican 
farm worker feeds five times that amount, B 2f? other people,, Consequently Russian 
agriculture is one-fifth as productive, and* nearly a century behind' Aire rican 
agriculture, 

American Agrarian Ref om 

This little appreciated record of -American farmers and fkm workers, that of 
a five-fold* increase in production 'in one century, forms, the backborie/of the Amer- 
ican f*ee enterprise system, with, agriculture supplying the sayings for industri- 
alization and the growth of ^this' Nation as the worlds leading Industrial, power^ 
This productive miracle was made 'possible in 1862 by Abraham Lincoln,. Thfdugh 
his approval of the Homestead Act / Lincoln (who \ms himself !owner of l60 acres o£ 
rich Iowa farmland) insured that American* farmers would not be peasants. They 
would own the land they tilled. Ancl the Government' kept Lincoln's promise of ag- 
rarian reform. In the : period from 1,862- 1900 farms and homes were' crea/fced * in 'the 
American praries arid frontiers for over U00,Q00 American f amilies. 

But the same year that Lincoln instituted the far reaching land' reforms ,of 
the Homestead Act/ he also signed the Morrill Land Grant College Abt that provided ' 
a scientific and moral education- for American farmers, and their sons and. daughters, 
enabling efficient farmers to stay on the land. Homestead farming, plus, scientific 
agriculture, and the will to work, gave American farmers 1 the know-how, that along 
with improved machinery and fertilization increased f aim productivity $$6% in one 
century, 

1 To foreign Visitors from v Asi'a, Africa, and South America,, who are not ac- 
quainted with American culture/ the secret of American farm efficiency is a mys- 
tery, one which tHey at. present have little hope of 'duplicating in their own 
countries. To Americans, however, our agricultural efficiency is no mystery. It 
is the practical result of Lincoln x s agricultural statesmanship* For our Civil 
War President created the freeholding agricultural system that has.met success- 
fully the challenge of feeding the expanding American population, numbering 31. k 
million in i860 and 179.3 million in I960. This population explosion of $20% in 
one ceritu3ry, was 1 fretftfy; ihcreasi]^/farm j productivity $$Q%, in the same period* And 
'this substantial agricultural achievement occurred while America was 'changing from 
a predominantly rural civilization- where over half lived on the land, to the pre- 
sent urban society where the 10# who live on the farms feed the 90% who live in 
cities, the suburbs, and the small towns, 

Lincoln based his agricultural revolution on the ideal of freedom, that a 
man is entitled to maintain the fruits of his honest labor, acquired by the sweat 



of his own ?brow« This right to freedom, to own your own, land and home and proper- 
ty, to preserve the savings* earned through self-reliance, hard work,, .honesty, and 
thrift is the reason .why the American family f azmers and f am workers lead the 
world in productive efficiency* * 

Freedom Versus Slaveiy 

This right to agricultural freedom, the right to own the land you till and 
the home your family lives in, Communism denies with all means at its command* 
Communism -asserts that the fruits of the fanaer's and f am worker's toil belong 
to the state, not to the men of the soil. Communism would make slaves out of 
farmers in order to end the sin of owning private property* But Lincoln made free 
men out of negro slaves in order to end the sin of owning human property* "Who is 
right,- Karl Mar:: and Nikolai Lenin, or Abraham Lincoln? Are the Communists ,r ight 
that agricultural slavery is justified as long as the state owns the land, 'and not 
,gree<% r individual farmers? 

-■ -This^is^the' crucial, ques tion^acing^lm erica* i-n^Bast^Berlln^^where* the~Soviet 
Union .has .erected a formidable brick, mortar, and barbed wire barrier to prohibit 
the exodus of East -Geiroan famers- "into Western Germany* No longer ean'East 
Germans flee to the freedom fd family faming in Western Europe* Instead, ,they are 
condemned to the never-ending agricultural servitude of Soviet-style collective 
farms* Thrpugh their East Berlin prison wall, in'violation of sworn treaties to 
preserve free transportation in and out of Berlin, the Russians have made quite 
clear their intent to ILStalinize" the East Gentian Iculaks "today* Tomorrow it will- 
be the 'turn for West German small farmers, and at some time in the not too distant 
future, the American family farmers*- 

Berlin in l?6l cpnfronts all free men with a moral choice - freedom versus 
slavery - the r ight of free men and free f araers to own the land on which they 
labor, and the homes in which they live, versus the right of 'governments to en- 
slave famaers and all free men in the name, and for the sake, "of the socialist 
state*

Truth, Dogma, and American -Youths 

One century ago, in 1861, with the -attack upon American freedom at Fort 
Svonter, Jbhe issue.. .was joined between JJnion versus secession., ,Unitejd,^the_North 
responded to Lincoln* s call to defend the American. Constitution, accepting the - 
carnage of civil war, in which over 363? ,000 Union soldiers paid the supreme price * 
These Yankee lives, given in battle, preserved the Revolution started by Yankee 
farmers and townspeople in 1776 at Concord and Lexington, arid saved the nation 
conceived in liberty and dedicated to the propositon that all men are created 
equal* But the physical shock of combat itself, did not reveal the ; basic moral 
issue of the Civil War. To face up to 'this moral question, Lincoln called the 
nation to the* task of personal honesty, soul searching, and truth seeking in 
November 1862, one month before he issued his Xtaancigation Proclamation that-set 
the negroes free. -- 

"The dogmas of the quiet past, are- inadequate to the stormy present. 
The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the 
occasion* As our case is new, so we must think anew, and act anew. We 
must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country. 

"Fellow-citizens, we cannot escape history. We of this Congress and 
this administration will be remembered in soite' of ourselves. ** The fieiy 



-6- 

trial through which we pass, wjjil light us down, in honor or dishonor, to 
the latest generation* *Je - even we here - hold the power j and bear the 
responsibility. In giving freedom to the slave, we assure freedom to the 
free - honorable alilp in what we give, and what we preserve* vfer shall 
n °kly_save, or meanly _losj e_,_theJLastJ)est,^ hope- of- earth* — Other means*- 



- may succeed; this could not fail* The way is plain, peaceful, generous, 
just - a way which, if followed, the world will forever applaud, and God 
must forever bless*" 

When given statesmen, and inspired leadership, Americans have always risen 
to the occasion* This they did when inspired by Abraham Lincoln during the Civil 
War* And this they did when urged on by General George Ifashington at Valley Forge* 
But what happened to American youth in Korea? Did American soldiers "bug-out" 
in combat and in the Chinese prisoner-of-war camps because they were convinced the 
American cause was no longer righteous, blessed by God, and worth dying for? And 
what about the college students in San Francisco, rioting against the Constitution*** 
ally authorized House Committee on Un-American Activities? Did they hope to 
achieve wftat w the Confederate" amies could not d5, dismember the Constitution of the 
United States of America? And what about the modern American negro in college? 
Does he think that record negro crime rates,, mob riots, and abolition of the Con- 
stitutional rights of Northern whites *by negro racial extremists is the proper way 
to show appreciation for* his freedom, purchased one century ago by the lives of 
36^,000 Northern Yankees, and by the assassination of his "Great BnancipatorJ" 

Are modern Americans in college ingrates or are they just ignoramuses? Have 
they turned their backs upon the American ideal of God-given equality for all men, 
or does their conduct indicate their colossal ignorance of the self-evident truth 
that America was established by spiritual patriots? iiost Americans, when con- 
fronted with-«a real moral choice, do not desire to be considered traitors* to their 
forefathers^ nor do they wish to be classed with the ignorant, the stupid, and the 
Godless, Instead, when put to the test, most Americans will gladly place their own 
lives, fortunes, and sacred honor in the balance to stand with George Washington 
and Abraham 'Lincoln* -It is for these individuals, who do not mind paying the price 
for being an American, that the following bibliography is offered. It is hoped 
that this suggested stucfor will enable young Americans to separate dogmas and doc- 
trine from eternal self-evident truth, that this generation of Americans may go 
forward to achieve the destiny for which our Nation was created*. God save America]

Your letter of August 2nd has been received and you may be sure 
it was a pleasure to autograph & copy of "Masters of Deceit' for you. Thank you 
for your kind remarks about the j?Bt and my administration of its affairs. We. 
hope our .endeavors will continue to merit your support and approval. 

„ !SinceJhis Bureau was; designated as thfe civilian intelligence agency 
primarily regppnsibte for protecting thb Nation's internal security pursuant to 
3?residehfial3)irective of September 6, 1939, there, have been many prosecutions 
Of Communist Partgmembers under provisions, of the Smith Act and The Internal 
Security Act of 195Q>- We have consistently discharged our responsibilities as 
defined by Executive Orders and Congressional, enactments. Laws concerning 
internal security are under consideration in Congress and the application of the 
Sxistiiig statutes is under consideration in the federal courts. 

You may "be interested;!*! knowing, that based on evidence developed 
and witnesses supplied by the FBI, a twelve-rcount indictment was returned on 
December i, 1961, charging the Communist Party, U.S. A., as an orgaR&ation, 
with failure to register under £he Internal Security Act of, 1950. Two Communig 



&»Pa rty functionaries, have also been indicted in this .regard; In addition^e 
; &M omey General fiiedpetftions with the Subversive Activities Control Bbar&on 
o j&y 3 v t, 1962, requesting that ten members bf the National Committee otthe^^ 
£5<2l> mmunist Party be ordered to "register as members of the. Party. I want to ^ 
"?=> as sure you this Bureau will continue to handle its responsibilities in t^ internal 
security field with the same dispatch and thoroughness; that have characterizes' 
our investigations in the past. 

Enclosed is some literature I thought wbuld.be of interest to you.

Dear 



Your letted Of August 13, 1982, has been received, 
and X am glad, to know you found the material In my book, "Masters 
oi Deceit," of interest* 

It is always encouraging to hear from citizens who 
demonstrate, an awareness of the problems, facing our country and 
who desire to prepare themselves and others to meet the atheistic 
challenge to our freedoms presented by communism* A broad 
knowledge of the objectives and ojierationsof the, communist move- 
ment is essential if the American people : are to effectively resist 
its-eroding influence. 

In accordance with your request, enclosed is some 
literature I hope will be of assistance to you. For your information, 
my new book, "A Study of Communism," will be released by Holt, 
Binehart and Winston, Inc.* on October 1st, and it is a comprehen- 
sive study of the- development and expansion of communism through- 
out the world.

Some time ago, exerpts from your "Masters iii; 

ii iIMmhum i - '" " - ■■ n „ , "_^ 

v 



Deceit 1 * appeared in our local newspaper, The St, • 
Eouis Globe — Democrat. I read from them with 
great concern and alarm- One of my greatest con 
is that these "Masters in Deceit'*" (Communists) ar 
promulgators of a Godless philosophy, which, if 
successful, could convert the "Free World'*, of wh 
the United States is still a part, into a "Godless 
Planet"'.

«"u 



.«:» 



c> o An. in-absence reply was sent correspondent 8-8-62=after it was 
determined she could not be identified in Bufiles. A field check by the Los Angeles 
Office developed no information relative to correspondent or her husband from the 
usual public, sources. 

<* • 3 # 

OBSERVATI&N: 



> Although the Los Angeles Office developed no pertinent information, 
correspondent's reference to Congressman Rousselot and to Dan Smoot would 
indicate she is an extreme conservative. Since Congressman Rousselot has openly 
professed his membership in the John Birch Society, correspondent could very well 
also be a member of that group. It is not believed the Director should allow- th@ 



type of publicity for "Masters of Deceit" in view of the above.

I have received your letter of August 18th and I 
want to thanfc you for your generous comments regarding my boo&, © 
"Masters of Deceit > It was written with the hope that it would 
;heip Its readers to sain an insight into the, true nature of communist 
activities. 

It Is always encouraging to hear from citizens who 
demonstrate an awareness of the problems facing our country and 
who desire to prepare themselves "and others to meet the atheistic 
challenge to our freedoms presented by communism. A broad 
knowledge of the objectives and operations of the communist move- 
ment is essential if our people are to effectively resist Its eroding 
influence. It is a.pleasure to forward to you* under separate cover, 
literature on communism which I: trust will tie 6* assistance to yoii. 

Perhaps you will also wish to obtain my new boofe*

Mr« *♦ Edgar Hoover $ Director 

Federal Bureau of Inv estigation 

Washington, D#C« 1,, - 

Dear Mr* Hoover: 

I hav<^ just completed the reading of your "most excellent' 1 
book ^MASTERS OF DECEIT. Even though I regret that it has 
taken me this long to get to it, I wanted to write and 
say "thank you' 1 for having written on the vital subject 
of Communism in America* 

I am preaching a series of sermons on the subject to my 
own congregation, passing to them some of the same infor- 
mation contained in your book. I feel that ministers can 
do a great deal to inform people as to the communist men- 
ace. I surely want to do my part along this line* 

I have written to the House Un-American Activities Comm» 
ittee for other factual information that I may use in 
<my study of the subject* If your department "has any 
printed material on the -matter that may be used for fur- 
ther study:, I would like to request it from you© 

ir 

If there is ever anything that I can personally do, either 
as a citizen, or as a minister, I would be more than happy 
to do it for nur nation. 

Many thanks once again for your helpful and inspiring book*^ 
It is one of the finest, that I have ever read on any sub- 
ject* On the matter of ''Communism in America, I feel that 
it tt stands alone 11 as the* very best obtainable* «- 

May God bless you in your efforts to keep our nation free*

Dear Mr. Hoover, 

I have recently finished reading your enlightening 
book, "Masters of Deceit, " which outlines so clearly the 
communist conspiracy and its danger to our country and I am 
doing all I can to educate myself further on the subject. 

However, lately there seems to be a trend in 
the press and among various people to emphasize the threat 
of a current renewal of fascism in our country*. They seem to * 
be playing this threat up and playing down the communist threat. 

Do you feel that there is definite evidence upon 
which these fears of fascist revival might be based? I will 
apipreciate your help on this question.

Honorable J. Edgar Hoover 

Director, Federal Bureau of Investigation 

Washington, D.C. 

Dear Mr. Hoover, 

I am a second-year law student at Rutgers, South Jersey, 
and will be teaching a course on Communism this semester at one 
iOf the local night schools. s\ 

In preparing for this course, I have read your Masters of 
Deceit . I congratulate you on this admirable and necessary 
message to the people of the United States* 

Your book and others have awakened me to the great need 
for positive work against Communism. 

So, at the risk of appearing presumptuous, I come to the 
purpose of my letter: Is there anything else I can do to combat 
Communism? Must an ordinary man merely watch and wait? Is there 
nothing positive that he can do now?

|To meet these challenges, labor must bla?e neW trails of endeayor, 

courageously face^new problems, and take-hearHn 1he* thought 

that without struggle, there can be no progress. 

r But even more Important, labor should never Jose sight of its ulti-

said: "The strongest bond of human^sympathy, outside the family 
relation, should be one of uniting all working people, of all nations,

And above all, as Americans, all of us should -thank God we are 
not "existing under forced labor — a system whereby even today 
much of the world's population Is forcibly required to work under 
slaver/ or accept the dire consequences.

Mr, J» Edgar Hoover, 

Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation 

Justice Department 

7Jashington 25, D.C. 

Dear Mr. Hoover; 

I have just completed reading the paperback odition of ~Masters 
of Deceit. I have found it to be very informative, and educational 
^ars^weir^Ts a wonderful expose^on the United States Communist Party. 




However, I do have one criticism of this book. On page 300 of the' 
paperback edition of your book, printed by Pocket Books Inc. of 
New York, the 14th printing, you, in my opinion, have made a serious 
error. I quote "from page 300, "The communists ignore the further 
fact that the faith of religious people is a moral necessity and 
a sense of personal relationship, not a completion of laboratory 
science." Taken literaly this passage indirectly implies that those' 
people who are not of a religious faith, are in fact immoral and 
incompatible with their fellow man. 

[SJany of my close friends are not followers of any religious 
;hdoctrine, and yet, they seem to be completely moral. Furthermore, 
such great, persons as Sir Julian Huxley, Bertrand, Russell, Dr. 

j^Linus Pauling, and Dr. Corliss Lamont are without a religious belief. 
^Thomas Jefferson in 1823 wrote a leltter to John Adams stating that 
fc'he didnot believe in a God, and I am quite positive that Thomas 

§£jef ferson was a person with morals. And surely Albert Einstein 

jV^would disagree with* you if he were living, and so would Dr. Freud, 

'-"•Mark Twain, and Thomas Paine. 

My objective in writing this letter to you, Mr. Hoover, is to prove 
that a person can be without religious beliefs, and still possess his 
morals. Therefore, I strongly suggest that in future printings of 
your book, you will omit or reword this particular passage. Thank-Jycu.

Captioned individual, who cannot be identified in Bufiles, 
wrote September 4, 1962, and stated he Iikec P'Masters of Deceit& but 
criticized one sentence which appears on page*322 of the regular edition. 
This sentence is: "The. communists ignore the further fact that the faith 
of religious people is a moral necessity and a sense of personal 
relationship, not a completion of laboratory science. " 

Correspondent states this implies people who have no 
religious faith are immoral. He has friends who are not religious but 
yet seem completely moral and he lists a number of atheists and 
agnostics he claims would\disagree with this sentence. He wants 
further printings to have this sentence reworded. 

. Correspondent completely misinterprets the sentence. 
It does not refer to morals but rather to faith and the fact it is necessary 
for religious people to have.faith. Even atheists and agnostics would 
agree with this since it is their professed lack of faith that makes them 
atheists or agnostics. However, no purpose would be- seryed'in 
entering into a debate with correspondent. • \/imA )

I have just finished reading your hook, Masters of Deceit , which I found to he 
one of the most enlightening hooks I have ever read* If the hoik of our population could 
read only Part 7, Conclusion, of your hook, it would aid in the reawakening that mast 
occur in order to save our heloved country* 

I Because I am most grateful to you for having written your hook (I have to wonder 

where I have heen the past 20 or 30 years to have been so profoundly asleep) , and "because 
I conside r myself to be one of tfoaJ Crra- mr l d' a .in tft Tlf tctn alR or .J B dateaaJtf *i& Don 
Whitehead specks in his The EBI Story . I have some questions to ask of you. You may never c 
have the time to answer them personally, hut perhaps you can incorporate the answers 
some future writing that you plan to do: 

You say on page 274 of £bur hook that "Except for outrigit liquidation, it is 
practically impossible to drive the party completely underground or completely above 
ground." tip question is: VHY DO ^B E&.VE TO TOLER&DE A COMMUNIST PABTY IS THESE UNITED 
SQ&TES AT AIL? Little Afghanistan has outlawed the Oonmunist Party in their country, 
and so has Egypt. Perhaps these are not good examples^-perfcaps they are leaning far to 
the left already without* the aid of a Communist Party. We know that the Kremlin would 
not put up^with a Capitalist Party in the U.S*S.B. Agreed as we are that conmanisra is 
criminal conspiracy, we are simply following the party line if we insist that eliminatin, 
the Comnunist Party takes aray any of our original freedoms. Our forefathers never plan: 
the existence of traitors in our midst. If your answer is that we do not have to tolj 
the Conraonist Party, please tell us how to proceed in order to eradicate it. 

I Ity second question ooncerns the press. How are warnings from you and authors 

W. CLeon Skousen ( The Staked Conmunist) going to be effective when w have newspapers like 
the McClatchy syndicate in California, of which the Sacramento Bee is a member, attempting 
to mold public opinion in the opposite direction. Isn 1 1 it contributing to general apathy 
^ien a paper editorializes as the Bee recently did to the effect that because the father 
of communism (the U.S.S.B.) is a member of the United nations* it is inevitable that the 
son (Bed Giina) should also become a member, simply because some nitwit bunch of leftist- 
leaning professors have declared it so. Then there is the St. Louis Post-Dispatch whose 
editorials the Sacramento Bee reprints frequently, a recent one quoting Dr. John H. 
Fischer, president of Columbia Teachers College: / ^ //V/o OO ItftD eX*-** 




If we persist in^aching simply that Coadonism' 
to Democracy approximately as villainy to heroism, 
the student will find it difficult if not impossib" 
to understand the enormous gains of Communism in t£e 
last two decades. He will be hard put to account fefe=» 
Oomnunism^ ajpeaT to the poor, the ignorant and the 
uncommitted >of the world. 



SEP*£i962' 




The editorial further; implies that government \>y tlie people is a political system whereas 
Capitalism is an economic system. This smacks familiarly of a fellow travelers definition 
of Conmmism as being merely an economic doctrine* 




fj ~ 2 - fj - 

' My- third questioxdfe^Tdiat can be done with another mgLiffr of the press who monopolizes 
an hour of tins on our jj\^l educational television statibar^di wek and a lite amount of time 
oh a local radio station, and always manages to get in his plugs for coanunism. I am referring 
to the publisher of our neighboring town of lair Oaks' newspaper, the San Juea Eeeord, wto each 
week moderates a program sponsored by the Sacramento World Affairs Council, of whidi he is a 
member, over Educational Television Channel 6, K7IE* His name is Selden Kenefee. 17© matter 
rtiomhe is interviewing (usually representatives or consuls of foreign countries), he always 
gets around to his favorite subject of how mich aid the United States is providing that country 
as compared to the U.S[.S.B. (it never fails that the U.S.S.B* always contributes twice as nuch 
and exdaanges twice as many students) , if there are any strings attached politically to the 
U.S.S.BJs funds (there never axe), and how simply delightful it is that these small countries 
can coexist so peacefully with the U.S.S.B. when the U.S. has so much apparent difficulty co- 
existing at a nuch farther distance. Becent interviewees wre from Afghanistan and Eiailand* 
Ee gleefully suggested to the consul general from Israel that there were object lessons for 
America in that Country's great strides of progress tinder socialism. In a recent discussion 
on U.N.3.S.C.O., Mr. Menefee volunteered the infoxmation that he liad at one time been closely 
associated with Archibald Madeish and at another with Sir Julian Huxley, the well-known Eabien 
Socialist* 

Since starting this letter, I had occasion to visit our California State lair where 
I visited a booth sponsored by the so-called Tom Toward Peace movement* I understand this 
is a group which has just sprung up the past year and has gained rapid support across the 
country. "According to their literature, the groupfe chairmen are Norman Qhomas end B. Baymond 
Wilson, executive director is Bobert W. Gilmore, and coordinators are Sanford Gottlieb and 
Bobert Kckas,' with a roster of followers one would expect: Eleanor Boosevelt, Clarence E. 
Pickett, Edwin Bahlberg, Martin Luther King, Jr., V&Lter Beuther, and Dorothy Day. 2he local 
Sacramsnto organiser is a teacher named Gordon Eealton* Among the pieces of literature dis- 
tributed at our State Jfcir were a "Handbook for Conscientious Objectors, « with instructions 
to oar teenagers on how to avoid their military obligation, a tract of the National Conmittee 
for Sane Naclear Policy, listing sponsors and directors of tftiich 25 have reference listings 
in the California Senate Eact Finding Committee on Un-American Activities. Ofcese sane 25 
people were found by the House Un-American Activities Committee and Senate Internal Securities 
Comnittee belonging to or lending aid to a total of 171 organizations having proven records 
of subversion or subversive front movements. Other pamphlets distributed were Council for 
Correspondence (Bear Mountain, New York), Eriends Conmittee on legislation, "Books are Bridges" 
sponsored by Acts for Jfeace in, Berkeley,* California, PcHL Washington Newsletter, Policy of 
United Wbrld Itederalists, and Student Action for World Peace under World Law (World Federalists, 
Inc.). 

When a local grx>up known as Calif ornians Committee to Combat Ooraiunism asked to rent 
a booth at the State Fair in order to distribute anti^Oonrconist literature and literature de- 
fending our private enterprise system, they were denied the privilege. Senator Albert S* 
Hodda of Sacramento backs the local ,Turn (toward Peacfe movement • Governor Edmund Brown sits 
on the State I&ir Board.

In reading over one of their paAphlets entitled, "American Initiatives in a 3\xrn 
Toward Jteace," (published at Cooper Station Box 401, New York S, Hew York), even I was almost 
taken in by the idealistic philosophy expressed therein, bat then I recalled what happened 
to our free world when we backed down in the Korean 7&r (thanks partly to Harry S-for-nothing 
2ruman) , and Tfaat happened to Nationalist China vfaen we left her holding the bag, and *hat 
happened in Oxba because, of great errors in judgment on the part of <xxr diplomats. 

Many of sy friends and I are alarmed at the way things are going in our state and 
nation. We are alarmed about the socialistic poisoning that is taking place even now in air 
schools at all levels and especially in our teachers* colleges and departments of education. 
We are alarmed because the few conservatives i&o love God and country don't seem to come up 
with the leadership that il rehires to clean up the nauseating mess and to &row the rascals 
out. We feel over^ielned and defeated before we start. We read and become informed and try

to inform .others, bat to al}> appearances it is such a slow and futile process. I will say 
that once we are informed there is no turning hade to the other side. It is just so dis- 
couraging to see -how others are just a3 strongly supporting the opposite side* We know 
that they can reverse their stand, just as many of us have, out how long does it take 
Bl$it' to triumph? 

I. am sorry to tax yoii of the time and energy it will take to read and answer this 
letter, "put of course I hope you Willi I thought you rai^it like, to hear that there are a 
few patriotic^lSeficano who- are doing a lot of thinking these days* I wish there iwas more 
that I-could no personally, so if you have any* specific .suggestions other than the general- 
ized ones in your hook, you mi^xt pass, them along.

September .13, 1962 



Mr. J. Edgar Hoover 
Director of the' F. B. I. 
Washington, D. C. " 

Dear Sir: 

I have recently read -Masters of. Deceit. It is one of the 
books recommended for reading by members, of the Womari"s 
Missionary Union of the Southern Baptist Convention. 

We are trying.to become better informed about our world 
and conditions existing in it. We recognize Communism as one 
of our major foes, both as American citizens and Christians. 

As I read your book, I became convinced that you are, a 
Christian. A non-Christian would not repeatedly refer to God 
and state that with God's-help our country would remain a free 
one. Would you mind telling me if you. are a Baptist ? 

K you could send us any additional information it would be 
greatly appreciated. As Christians we want, to be. better informed 
to enable us to be better able to pray. 

As an American citizen, I am grateful for the wonderful 
work you have done and are doing. 




Sincerely voiirs.

TRUE COPY 



Sept 23rd 



Dear Sir 



I just finished reading (Masters of Deceit) . I read in 
Jim Bishops column in our paper about it. It was so darn, interesting 
I read it straight through. 

We have 5 children, 3 in High school now, one married 
& oldest son in marines. How could you tell if a teacher in your school 
was a communist? My son intends to make a book report on school 
for this. 

What is really bothering me is two things. I recently 
found out that the Dairy where we get our milk. The father was a 
communist but he is dead. His 5 sons run the Dairy now. How do I 
know there not to? And in 1941 when war was declared the communists 
in our town were made, to register as such. 

Our Governor said I would be allowed to see who they 
was at the court house as its open to public view if desired. I dont want 
to do any business with them if I can help it. Is this correct or do you 
know? He said it would be in the clerk of courts. I sure dont want my 
grand- children to live under communist rule. Again I say your book 
was an eye opener. 

Sincerely 






T?F5

Dear Sir: 

£) I am wondering if a condensed form of your book 

"Masters of Deceit" could be published Nation Wide in local 
papers, also in "The Readers Digest 1 .' 

Our people should be educated concerning the 
truth about Communism. 

I think perhaps our fear of being radical may lead 
us to the extreme in the opposite direction. 

Very respectfully,

Dear Mr* Hoover: 



It pleases me to enclose the September 1962 issue, of our company 
rcagaz£rai&^^ »to' respectfully invite your 

attention' \o an Editoriafwhich appears on irhe-dast^ijnsidejpage^ _ 

I thought you would be interested in the subject matter of this 
Editorial, namely Communism, and the efforts we are making to 
bring this menace to the attention of our employees and their 
families. As responsible citizens we are deeply concerned with 
the constant threat Communism poses. We further believe this is 
an excellent method of coping with Communism by creating the 
necessary awareness among our people. We, of course, are most 
cognizant of your efforts in the same direction, and along this 
line have, used as a reference your fine booK ^Masters of Deceit". 
I know that I speak for all of us when I state we ^l^^ wmmmmmmMmmmm ^ 
ourselves to defeat this common enemy and, to this end, assure 
you and your dedicated department of our complete cooperation and 
assistance. With best wishes, 

Sincerely,

vids, 21; Edward Kester, 19, and 
Paul Uhrig. All except Davids 
gave their addresses as the 
headquarters of the American 
Nazi Party in Arlirigton, Va. 
Davids gave another Arlington 
address* 

At the hearing before Keiser 
.which iegajuit 8.4&and lasted 
15 minutes, Assistant District 
Attorney J. Michael Smith 
handed each Nazi a copy of the 
charges. 

Davids said he was spokes- 
man for the group. He asked 
that the hearing be continued 
so that they could obtain coun- 
sel. After the hearing, he* called 
the headquarters in Arlington. 
'Grandstand Play* 

Meanwhile, at the hotel, Hall 
in a press conference denounced 
the Nazis picketed as "a grand- 
stand play, to draw public at 
tention and sympathy." 

His speech was delivered to 
about 200 persons. Some booed 
occasionally. 

! # Hall attacked the U. S. stand 
on Cuba, answering a heckler, 
"I don't care if_Russians_are 
there." 

He said that if the federal and 
state government would take a 
firm stand on the racial prob- 
lem, it would disappear quickly. 

The speech was arranged by 
the Philadelphia Social Science 
Forum.

Nazis Here 
Protesting Red 

500'Attack Pickets 
At Micfcity Meeting 
To Hear Gus Hall 

About 500 persons broke 

through a line of 75 policemen 

*and attacked five members of 

the American Nazi Party at 13th 

and Chestnut sts. last night. 

The five were there to picket 
a speech by Gus Hall, a national 
leader of the Communist Party, 
in the Adelphia Hotel. They 
wpre khaki uniforms, combat 
boots, armbands with swastikas, 
and military decorations. 

The policemen, wearing hel 
mets, began assembling at 6 
P. M. They formed a line along 
the curb on the south side of 
Chestnut st. * 

Crowd Gathers 

The- crowd gathered behind 
them and on other corners of 
the intersection. 

The pavement in front of the 
hotel was kept free of pedes* 
trians. Ko parking was permit- 
ted. Parked cars were towed 
away. 

The Nazis arrived at about 
7,30. They marched in a single 
line, carrying signs that read: 
"Send the Red Rat Back to Mos- 
cow," "Communism is Trea- 
son," "Karl Marx was a Crack- 
pot," "Free Enterprise is Here 
to Stay." 

Screaming and waving their 
fists, onlookers crashed 
through the police line. About 
two dozen policemen and detec- 
tives pushed the Nazis against 
a wall a&4 formed a cordon 
around f&ern.

Dear Sir:- 

My son. is a great admirer of yours. Upon reading 
your book last December he wrote to you complimenting, you on 
your fine work. He is 16 yrs old. You sent him a very cordial 
letter «in return, which pleased us all. 

Under separate cover, I am sending you a copy of 
'•Masters, of Deceit" the 10th printing. . Since I have other autographed 
1st editions I was disapointedthat I was not able .to get a 1st edition 
for the boy. But this is an un-redited edition and.he will be proud, to 
have your personal autograph in .his own Library some day. I wish .to 
give this to him as a Christmas gi ft. If you will be nice enouehtto 
autographdt for him. His name isl

Caldwell, Idaho 

Dear Mr. Hoover, 

I am a senior in high school, and several,problems have ~ 
come up as a result of my American government class, about which 
I would likle to ask you. 

First, what is your opinion of the John, Bur ch Society? 
Iln.thi0.area it is constantly laughed at and; is considered absolutely 
'"way out." I consider you someone "whpfshould know"j and I would 
appreciate it if you could. tell me whether this- is just a good patriotic ^ 

grolip (of which we need more) or if it is really top radical. . l4- 

Do. you consider The Naked Communist an authoritative ^ 
J book? According to some in our area, it is not even worth reading. 
I Before hearing this I had considered it very good information. 



I would like to, thank you for writing Masters of Deceit , 
which I recently read. It is tremendous! and I certainly learned many 
things from, it. 

Realizing that you.are a very busy man, I know I should 
not trouble you; but I would sincerely like to know the truth, and any 
help you/can give me will' be greatly-appreciated. - 

Thank you. 

Yours truly.

NOTE: Correspondent cannot, be identified in Bufiles. He is not 
completely accurate in his. statement concerning; the Scottsboro - 
case as discussed in "Masters of Deceit. u This book, does ijot ~ 
indicate that the NAACP was the "first; organization to provide* 
help" although page 252 does indicate thaj that organization belieyed: 
the defense "fell considerably short of perfection" and retained 
Clarence Barrow to represent the boys. It subsequently withdrew 
when it became evident that the Communist Party was only 
interested in promoting "Red Fascism'* in America and after 
At came into conflict with the old International Labor Defence which: 
:* entered the case and used it as a vehicle ior communist 
propaganda.

Subject: The Scott sboro Case 



Dear Mr* Hoover: 



o 






In your book. Master s of Deceit* you state that the NAACP. M 
was the first organization to provide help for the defendants* 
Haywood Patter son* Andy Wright* fbgene Williams* Olin Moirfegonw^ 
ery* Willie Robertson, Clarence Norris and Ozie Powell * However*,! 
in the book* Scottsboro Boy* there is nd record of the NAJg^s 
action in this matter* The book states that after the firs** 
trial the ILD stepped in and took over the defendants case* 
Obviously* the defendants were innocent* as proved by the court 
records and later by Alabama 1 s action on the case* but if that 
was the case, why didvthe NAACP leave the matter to the ILD 
which was a communist front? Even if the ILD was interested "only 
in promoting iRed Fascism' in America"* why didn't the NAACP 
stick with the case to see justice done? 




-*a 



a memoer 



so I am confused on another point*A 
was on the Scottsboro Defence Committee and* l presume 
of the ILD. Does he have -any known ranking in the 
communist party? And if so* what part did he play in the Scotts- 
boro Case? 



i 



f 



If it is possible* would you please state your opinion on 
the case in general? T enjoyed Masters of Deceit iramensaLy and 
regard r it as one of the most important books for our present-day 
situation. HX-100 «&» 6 3t j 9iI2ts J&$

have read the book about two times, and every time I read it, 

I get a better understanding out of it as I did in the first 

time that I read it. I hope that you will soon write another 

book as well written and as well illustrated as the book "Masters 

of Deceit". --

Dear Mr. Hoover: (Q 

This summer I read your ."book Rasters 



of Deceit a nd I wanted to, write, and tell 
.you. how much I* enjoyed it* It made me 
sit up and take notice of the people and 
things around me. Before I read the book 
I did not fully understand or realize' 
just what commuhisn realty is.* 

"" ^ I^read^^ 

has taken me this long to get- up- enough 
courage to write to you. After I read it 
I talked one of my friends into reading 
the "book and she liked it as well as I did, 

Personally I think every hoy and girl 
in high school should read it, because 
it would make so many more people aware 
of what can happen if they let themselves 
become swayed by the lure of communists;.

Recently I have read the book ^Masters of Deceit" b y Mr _ 

J. Edgar Hoover and have found it .quite enlightening. 

I belong- to a Methodist Church in this city and have noted 
certain publications by the General Board of the Methodist Church 
on "Christian Social Concerns" which contain statements 
synonymous to communist propaganda. I am referring especially 
to the advocating of total disarmament and aMoato race relations* 

I love my church and do not wish to have my faith marred 
but am slightly confused. I have the feeling that this hasebeen 
brought to your attention before now by many people, but .1 have 
not had the benefit of your statements on it. 

It would be appreciated if, at your convenience, you could 
*make a study of this material with regard as to whether or not 
it has been Communist infiltrated. 



Thank you very much and am enclosing postage.

& have been studying communist ideology for about one (1) year.

If I am not imposing upon you, could you send
